Congratulations to Andy Tomasik, Visual Arts teacher at Warsaw Community High School and recipient of a 2019 Lilly Endowment Teacher Creativity Fellowship!
On Thursday, Jan. 17th, Warsaw Community High School and the Warsaw Area Career Center are holding the annual WCHS/WACC Academic Showcase from 5-8 p.m. Parents and students can enter through the Main Office (Door 1) or the Performing Arts Center rotunda at 5pm. This event is meant for current WCHS students and their parents, as well as all incoming freshmen (Class of 2023, current 8th graders) and their parents.
The Showcase is a great chance to come tour the building and see all the wonderful opportunities that are available to students at WCHS and in the WACC. Every department throughout the school will be showcasing their talented teachers and previewing their available classes and curriculum. There will be fun and interactive activities, as well as informational flyers that could help students and families decide what courses they should take at WCHS.
To the parents of incoming freshmen (current eighth graders), there will be two opportunities to attend the informative meeting in the Performing Arts Center. The first Class of 2023 meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m., and the second will be held at 6:30 p.m. The meetings contain the same information, and parents of incoming freshmen (Class of 2023) are encouraged to attend one of the meetings either before or after touring the Showcase. These meetings will be held in the auditorium of the Performing Arts Center.

WCS To Host Showing of 'Screenagers' Nov. 12 - Warsaw Blog
Warsaw Community Schools will present parents with an opportunity to learn more about the effects of raising children during a digital age. The film, titled “Screenagers” is directed by Delaney Rutson, M.D. The movie will be followed by a special panel hosted by WCS staff to further equip parents and discuss important points from the film. The event will take place 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12, at the Warsaw Performing Arts Center located at 1 Tiger Lane, Warsaw, Indiana.
Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might impact their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics and internet addiction.
Through poignant, and unexpectedly funny stories, along with insights from authors, psychologists and brain scientists, the film reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.
Topics discussed in the film include: How do personal digital devices aﬀect school life; how does social media affect our relationships; how does screen use affect children’s development; and how vulnerable are we to video game addiction and depictions of violence.
Screenagers is about the impact of the digital age on children and how to help families minimize harmful eﬀects and ﬁnd balance. After seeing the ﬁlm, people tell us that they feel more conﬁdent and better equipped to establish balance around screen time. Please note, seventh grade students will watch the film in class at both Edgewood Middle School and Lakeview Middle School.
